My wife and I set a small limit of $150 that we spend on each other for Christmas this year. We both came to the conclusion that we usually spend to much on each other and that a gift of $150 would require some real thought to make it special..okay..I have been thinking... What should I buy her? medcop

A trip to a "Day Spa"--some pampering for herself. Maybe a gift certificate (or a couple of smaller ones) to her favorite shops. I don't know if you have kids, but a day of pampering away from the kids is a real treat. Even if you don't, the same thing and then a quiet dinner out with her afterwards is something she will appreciate.

Never buy clothes unless its fur, or leather. Never buy stuff for the house. Jewelry. After everybody else opens everything, "Oh, I almost forgot...." From the shirt pocket you slowly take it out. Financially it hurt, but...Its worked every time for three wives...through all the fighting or whatever, you can always recapture the moment when your fingers first slid into her bra with JEWELRY.

$150? That should almost buy her a case of M193 type ammo from Ammoman. [:)]

My wife usually likes dirty movies and sex toys... Problem is, she can't open her presents in front of the kids [:)] I told her tonight that I'd come home from the gunshow in Harrisburg tomorrow with some gifts for her... She didn't think that was funny...

I was going to suggest a full auto 380 M12 SMG since the two 9mms you are considering are too large for woman's hands. But the $150 limit is pretty low for this. Then again if you fool her into thinking this can be bought for $150 or less then maybe you can get toys for you into the house easier since they cost no more than $150. But then you probably already consulted her and told her the real price. See what telling your wife the truth does even if it was just the one time. The truth has repercutions that ripple for years. Don't know your wife but my wife would like a gift certificate towards separate vacations. Hmmm what does that say about our relationship? A new Puppy?, definatly not a cat,

Unless you have a horrible reputation for choosing gifts, I recommend you stay away from the gift certificates. They're too impersonal and don't show much thought and consideration. Remember, it's the thought that counts when giving a gift. Think about what she likes to do with her spare time and buy something related to that. Or try to remember a time when she mentioned that she wished she had this or that. A thoughtful and caring gift will be more appreciated. If she likes jewelry, and you just can't think of anything else, you can always go that route. Also, don't wait until Christmas Eve to do your shopping. All the good stuff is already gone by then.

If you have to ask the members of a gun board what to buy your wife for Christmas then you are in deep shit.

Does she like power tools?

$150.00 makes a nice down payment on a $600 gun. If you choose something you like then if she doesn't like it you can always keep it and like it. That way you also avoid standing in the refund/exchange lines. Please remember that "I just love this_____" means absolutely nothing. It'll take her about two days to getting around to telling you she has no intention of wearing that Rodney Dangerfield warm-up jacket with the pink pigs on it. (Years ago I had a friend who actually gave his golf-hating wife a new sand wedge for her birthday. Of course they are divorced today.) [:D]

A gift certificate to Victoria's Secret so her gift also becomes YOUR gift.

Careful with the "power tools", she might chip her teeth. Make sure you supply batteries. Nothing sucks more than getting battery powered gift without batteries.

I didn't think it would be that hard...I think that is why she wanted to set this limit..so I would have to really think about it! [b]I like the perfume and Victoria's Secret idea[/b] The ammo idea was good...but I don't think she would think that was very romantic. Thanks for the help! medcop
